I'm an old finisher and like the natural beauty of wood grain. Smile


I'm not old but I'm way past snot nosed kid and there's plenty of wood that sounds great but is just plain ugly and deserves to get an opaque finish.



im a snotnosed kid and im a big fan of bursts

In terms of the work being done here, another vote for seeing the grain.

But its all subjective.
The right color for the guitar.
I don't think I'd want twenty green guitars. . .

. . . then again, maybe I would.

I like blue. Doesn't matter whether its solid or transparent, there's nothing quite like blue.

I couldn't find an exact category - I have three votes. I love natural. My 74 Ash strat is natural and it is beautiful. A good Les Paul Cherry burst (like guitarguy just did) is a classic and gorgeous. But, to pick a color, I love Gibson SG translucent red. It just talks to me.

Whatever talks to you will be the right answer.

For an hollow body I'd have to go with natural or a burst. I'm really picky about bursts too. I really don't like bright bursts, I'd go with either a 'Desert Burst' or a tobacco burst...very classy looking IMHO

I like bursts. Most any kind, most any color. ALthough I am partial to those yellow-orange-bright red-deep red transitions. Although I like a blue with a hint of black at the edges. Even a red to black. As long as the main color is transparent to let the wood shine through.
